Info for Teachers
More than 3,000 Florida teachers use Algebra Nation to help students master course content in Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2–not to mention Pre-Algebra, Honors courses, and beyond. We have carefully aligned all of our materials to the MAFS so you can be sure they are tailored to the content you need to prepare your students for the Florida Standards Assessments.
Algebra Nation is designed to supplement your instruction, rather than replace it. Here are some ways you can use our tools to complement your current approach:
- 1. Whole Group Instruction: Show part of an Algebra Nation video to reinforce a lesson you taught last week so students get a reminder and can see the material taught in a slightly different manner (by one of our four tutors—let them pick their favorite!)
- 2. Small Group Work & Differentiated Pacing: Let students move through our videos at different paces based on their comfort with the material. This approach can free up time for you to work with small groups on tough-to-tackle concepts or to create new challenges for students who are mastering content at a fast pace.
- 3. At-Home Support: Wish you could answer your students homework questions in real-time? Direct them to the Algebra Nation Walls, where they can get instant answers to their questions from Study Experts, other teachers, and their peers.
- 4. Test Preparation: Use the Test Yourself! Practice Tool to help students prepare for tests and quizzes and for the FSA. The tool provides students with instant feedback and direct them to videos to help them addresses gaps in their understanding. You can run reports to see their results, too!
